Xmas stay

Posted Dec 16, 2014
Hotel very good, views amazing, Near to Christmas markets, 24 hour shop opposite. Always taxis at the front. Staff always happy to help, view by night to die for. Near one of the spas. I proposed to my partner in the centre of the ice skating ring which is the largest in Europe!!

Fabulous stay

Posted Dec 6, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Could have a spa bath on the pool area. We like bubbles.
Location: Great location for Xmas markets and very central to most tourist sites and metro lines.
We were delighted with our room overlooking the Chain Bridge and the green. We were even more delighted that the staff at check in picked up on our throw away comment that we had come to Budapest for my other halves birthday. So when we turned up to sparkling wine and two lovely champagne glasses with a very nice note from the hotel - that was the cherry on the top. The bar staff were so helpful too - they really could not do enough for you. Each night we came back to a very clean room and were stunned by the maids ingenious use of folding towels and bedcovers into flowers and swans! Highly recommended. Nice and central and can get across to Buda side easily from here too.

夜景がとにかく美しい。

Posted Dec 3, 2014
Location: 最高
ホテルの素晴らしさは他のかたもコメントしている通りです。部屋はやや狭いですが、夜景は素晴らしいし、ロケーションは抜群、文句のつけようがありません。 ただ、ホテルに関してではありませんが、タクシーに乗る際にこのような高級ホテルの名をだすと、運転手はたいてい、ぼってきます。私の場合、西駅からのわずかな距離で5000フォリントとられました。英語がわからないふりをして、ホテルの前の道にとめ、料金を請求してきました。ブダペストのタクシーのひどさは、いまではヨーロッパの首都では最低の部類に入るので、ホテル側はなにか対処すべきではないでしょうか。ホテルの玄関から道路まではすぐなので、そのようなところにタクシーが停まったら、ホテルの人間がすぐでてくるべきだろうと思います。

A Lovely Experience!

Posted Dec 2, 2014
Location: Close to the chain bridge and walking around the center of the city and along the Danube.
I stayed here over Thanksgiving holiday and the hotel does its tree lighting on the 27th (at least this year) of November and so I woke up after jet lag to a chorus singing in the central area and holidays decorations everywhere. The location is great and the room large and cozy. My friends loved it too. They also have Nespresso coffee in the rooms - awesome! I also enjoyed the workout center/pool/sauna.

Lovely, well appointed hotel, centrally located.

Posted Nov 27, 2014
Pros: It's location to the city center, markets, and attractions.
Cons: Stress that the Euro and US dollars are not readily accepted by many merchants and to have the HUF (Hungarian Fortin) on hand.
Location: Holocaust Museum, outdoor markets, local restaurants, Parliament, St. Stephan's Basilica, local shops and Hard Rock Cafe.
Welcoming staff, umbrellas for rainy days, good food.

Lovely hotel, great position

Posted Nov 26, 2014
Pros: Position, facilities, friendly staff
Location: A visit to Buda is a must! The Thermal Baths at Gallaert Spa, The Basillica, the Parliament buildings.. so much to see, so much to do!!
We had a lovely 3 night stay at the Sofitel. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming and more than happy to answer our many questions about Budapest. The position of the hotel is fantastic, being so close to the Chain Bridge and a perfect place from which to explore the city.

November break

Posted Nov 23, 2014
Pros: location and facilities
Cons: the room did not get serviced until late afternoon--we returned to get something to find it as we left it
Location: central. next to the bridge, next to the boat jetty, tram stop and bus stop outside, All attractions either in walking distance or tram ride
Hotel was right next to the bridge--fantastic position. When I asked the check in staff why there was a delay she said she was checking if we could get a free upgrade and we got a room overlooking the river and toward the church on the hill. They booked restaurants for us and the bed was huge and so comfortable....loved every minute....

Ottima posizione

Posted Nov 20, 2014
Pros: Il panorama delle camere vista Danubio e la posizione.
Cons: Le camere ed i bagni dovrebbero essere rimodernati, le finestre più insonorizzate.
Location: La posizione è eccezionale per una visita da turista a Budapest
La posizione dell'albergo è ottima, in pieno centro e se prendi la camera sul Danubio la vista è stupenda soprattutto la sera quando Pest è sapientemente illuminata, quindi consigliamo vivamente la camera vista Danubio. L'ingresso dell'albergo è molto suggestivo e moderno ma le camere cominciano ad essere datate, non proprio all'altezza del 5 stelle ed allo standard Sofitel. Le camere sono pulitissime ed il letto comodissimo, se hai la fortuna di avere la camera sul Danubio ti consigliamo di dormire con le tende oscuranti aperte, uno spettacolo mozzafiato e....di alberghi e panorami noi abbiamo avuto la fortuna di averne visti tanti. La piscina e la sauna sono pulite ma un pò piccole considerando lo spazio a disposizione. La colazione ha un prezzo esagerato. Gianfry e Stefy

Good central hotel, spectacular views.

Posted Nov 20, 2014
Pros: Doormen charming and helpful, large spacious interior, easy and helpful check out.
Cons: The (female) receptionist on our check-in was unfriendly and looked bored! 2 bath robes would have been nice.
Location: So much to see, all within walking distance. Advantage of being next to the Danube, easy access via Chain Bridge to Buda castle area and to all Pest.
Easy to stay in, rooms lack certain character but all essentials included. Good lift service to rooms and excellent daily cleaning.
